That's interesting! I love how different bodies respond to pregnancy in such unique ways. Part of my whole issue is that my joints and ligaments do not really stretch or move, so all of my organs and everything are just pushed right out in front. My ribcage and hips haven't expanded at all. But my belly is HUGE.
YES! I have lots of empire-waisted clothes so I haven't had to buy much maternity...or any really. But the other night I went to a party in a fancy empire-waisted dress and had to go home within an hour to change because it was so tight around the ribcage that I couldn't breathe, I nearly fainted.
Silly me makes the same mistake again today with a satin shirt that fit in the ribcage two weeks ago...I just sneezed and burst a seam!!
I'm bummed about the jackets, and all of my fitted maternity shirts from last time not fitting. I'm making due with some long, non-maternity shirts from Old Navy that have lots of stretch. Things are getting too short this time, too. I'm only a little more than halfway...Eek!
I'm starting to have a lot of ligament stretching, especially around my hips and lower abdomen. It's kind of strange, because I get achy which didn't happen with DD... Plus, for some reason I got pregnancy boobs this time, and really could stand to get at least a couple of new bras - but am so hesitant since I know they won't fit after DS is born.
Btw - the spaghetti strap bras from Fruit of the Loom actually work pretty well for nursing. You always just pulled my breast out of the top of it. They stretch enough to accommodate.
Edit - I pulled my breast out...not you.
